NOT that bad of an idea.
While the first two stories are set in faraway historical periods, both the third tale,"The Secret of the Stones," and the fourth, "The Healing Hands" are set in a fairly modern setting. All four also deal with primarily friendly ghosts who return not to haunt or terrorize, but rather to aid the living. In each story, the protagonist is saved from death in a variety of ways which allow each to wrapped up neatly with out a twist or scare.
If "all ages" means safe for young children to read, then this is your ticket, though I suspect most children would close this book abut two pages in. As an adult reader, an appreciator of comic books and the tales they tell, I found Ripley's Believe It or Not! #49 to be an entertaining enough read which I'm glad I did not save for the terrors of All Hallows Eve--that would have only courted disappointment.
With a cover price $0.25, you are likely to pay just a touch more. I found Ripley's Believe It or Not! #49 online for anywhere from $1-3, and in your local comic shop, that is if you can scare up a copy.
